Sporting concepts hint at future models
20 May 2009

Volkswagen has unveiled new sporting concepts of the Golf GTI and Polo.

Unveiled at the annual Worthersee gathering of VW and Audi enthusiasts, the Golf gets lowered suspension to improve handling and a new sports exhaust system.

Also at Worthersee: Audi Q5 concept revealed

It comes in “Firespark Metallic” paint, features 19-inch alloys with a red stripe running around the edge, and gets smoked LED tail lights.

Inside there are aluminium tread plates with a “GTI Worthersee 09” logo and trim in brushed aluminium.

The seats come in contrasting black and red nappa leather with “Berry White” leather piping.

VW says the Polo hints at a future performance model, although the upgrades are limited to new 18-inch “Budapest” alloy wheels and a dark grille, lower bumper insert and headlights.

Inside there are high-gloss steering accents and leather seats.
